Rector's Letter - Nov '07

A Word from William
At our Harvest service on Friday 12th October we were delighted to welcome the new chaplain to Trinity College Rev Darren McCallig as our preacher. He used the story of the Lepers as an example of how often people forget to give thanks and that Harvest is an opportunity for us to give thanks for the everyday miracles of life.

Thank you to Janet Edgely and the ladies who so beautifully decorated the Church for harvest. We are grateful to Janette Wilson for running a flower arranging class in the Small Hall on Wednesday evenings. Thanks also go to the ladies who provided the tea following the service.

An opportunity has arisen for me to go on a Holy Land tour leaders week. We will be squeezing what should be a ten day holiday into a week. I have never been to the Holy Land before and I am looking forward to seeing the sights. They say if you saw the vertical road to Jericho you might be more compassionate on those who didn’t stop to help a stranger, as the good Samaritan did, as you would be leaving your self open to being mugged. Many who have taken this trip speak of how it helped bring the bible alive for them and subsequently brought more life to their sermons. I will be away from Monday 5th November until Monday 12th but as usual will be available on my mobile phone!

Preparations are under way for our Christmas Sing Along on 30th November in the Parish Centre at 7pm and I look forward to seeing many of you there.

God bless. William
